Buzz Rickson's 'Air Apaches' Watch Cap (Olive)
This heavy worsted wool watch cap takes its name for its design purpose; to keep warm the heads of the watchmen onboard military ships. This dense wool is of superb quality in this 1941 model, and the iconic construction method sees the top split into six sections, and sewn together for the perfect comfort fit. This option features a custom woven ‘Naval Clothing Department’ label which would have been correct at the time. One size fits all with this cap, and it can be worn with one roll or two. The heaviness of the wool allows the shape of this cap to be maintained throughout its lifespan. The iconic stencil design on this cap reads ‘345th AIR APACHES’.
